Bread of Life

Vocations Sunday is on May 7th, 2017. This is an opportunity to celebrate vocations, both lay and ordained. We are encouraging church communities to share stories to inspire and demonstrate the impact of calling on indivdual lives and the wider world. We will be adding vocation stories to this page and sharing them on Facebook and Twitter. Share your stories using #BreadofLife

Resources

This pack brings together sermon plans, worship ideas, dramas, reflections, art, small group studies and courses, all relating to Vocations Sunday. We hope that this material will prove useful in helping dioceses and parishes to preach on vocations, both for Vocations Sunday and indeed all year round.
